Local Jersey Cops Claim Police Chief Setting Aggressive Ticketing Quoteas

In order to tally a high number of tickets he might break up a fight just over the Newark border and report it occurred in East Orange, issue jaywalking tickets or cite a parent who has double-parked outside an elementary school to run in to pick up her child.

Anything to fill what he describes as his ticket quota.
